I'm compiling a list of all currently available free biology learning resources online. I want this to become exhaustive, so please help me fill it in.

Free online biology textbook. Good resource, but missing depth.

I'm starting this community with the goal of bringing together aspiring and existing biohackers around the subject of free online biology and biotechnology education.

Now in 2016, biotechnology is at a point similar to where computers were back in the 1980's. Mirroring Moore's law, biotech is getting cheaper and more accessible at an exponential rate. The possible innovations are mind-boggling: solutions to the energy crisis, accessible food for starving countries, building materials, recycling, just to name a few. Fear mongering and lack of education have caused citizens to mistrust genetic engineering, slowing down its progress.

I claim that more easily accessible education in the fields of biology, evolution, and biotechnology can lead to a more open bioengineering ecosystem, cross-pollination of knowledge, and ultimately faster innovation.

Inspiring TEDx talk on the progress of the DIYbio movement, its potential, and its hurdles.

Evidence that money != happiness. This guy spent all of 9 million dollars in lottery winnings in the span of 8 years, and admits that he's now happier than he was before.

For those who are interested, MIT is giving away a full self-study curriculum in system dynamics. I'm at the 2nd Roadmap, and it's definitely rewarding. I feel like we should put more focus on system-centered learning in the future.
